Reception[edit]

While Dylan P. Gadino of Laugh Spin called the show "fast-paced and hilarious".[2] and John Blabber said it was "threatening to be the best new animated series of 2012".,[3] most reviews have been negative, with Dennis Perkins of The A.V. Club gave Brickleberry an F, stating that the show doesn't try to be offensive but does a great job with great characters and talented voice actors wasted on the "dreadful writing".[4]

Brian Lowry of Variety laments the show's eagerness to offend, comparing it unfavorably to South Park:

"Yes, 'South Park' has long since established animation is a fine place to skewer sacred cows, but 'Brickleberry' has nothing more on its mind than seeing how far it can push the boundaries of dick and handicapped jokes. As a consequence the premise—a second-rate national park—is purely incidental."[5]

IGN reviewer Jesse Schedeen gave the episode a 2.5/10, saying: "Comedy Central has enjoyed a long, successful history with animated fare [...] Brickleberry is like a slap in the face to that legacy."[6][7]

Emily Ashby from Common Sense Media gave the show 2 stars and called it: "Explicit, and racist."[8]
